Once again it is time to get this blog thing updated....As usual we have been running around like chickens with our heads cut off---ok maybe a bit graphic...but..... We have been on the road doing quilt shows from the Bay Area to San Diego for the last several months.
We just have one more next week in Reno http://qscexpos.com/reno.html---Then a whole month off (well not really off, that is when we try to catch up on all the things we have put on the back burner and get ready to start all over again August - October)!! Anyhow Fabric-Chicks just sponsored our first annual retreat at Lake Tahoe with Donna Greenwald. Thank you to Donna and all the ladies who attended it was a true pleasure, the creative energy was amazing---I am looking forward to next year!!!
Donna as always did an amazing job creating this Lake Tahoe scene for our first retreat project. She is one of the most amazing teachers I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. Her techniques are very different and she is able to make the process easy for all skill levels. The dimension is amazing and so realistic.
We stayed at the Presbyterian Conference Center at Zephyr Point. Our facilities were right on the lake--It was gorgeous and so peaceful.
Here is a photo of many of the ladies and their tree trunks--It was fascinating to see how different they all turned out. Love the texture magic and the fibers....
There were many ladies that have taken several of Donnas classes in the past, and several of them opted to work on their own projects or other patterns of Donnas...It was so inspiring to see all the different techniques and ideas. Everyone was so helpful and shared their techniques and ideas.
Not often you can really surprise someone!!!
Gracie joined us for a night -it was hard to keep her out of the freezing water--when it was so sunny and beautiful outside.
that is it for now----call us to get your name on the list for Fabric-Chicks 2014 Retreat with Donna--We haven't received the final contract yet, but we will let you know the exact dates as soon as we know.
Have a fun time being creative--Beth
